Changing face-level air vents

Seriously considered updating to the Mercedes vents like GFWilliams did before he went to Ferrari stuff, then saw the amazing new Komo-tec aluminium vents, but decided to keep things simple and affordable with a straight swap to the standard Alfa vents with chrome trim rings. Parts are ordered, but I'm wondering what's involved in fitting them.

I'm led to believe you can remove the original vents with a firm tug, but is fitting the new ones a simple matter of pushing them in, or is there any difficulty re-fitting the hoses on the back of them?

As an aside, anyone know how you take the air vents (same front bits) off the Evora 4xx models? Do they just pull out too?  Thanks in advance.

I've never done it, and the service manual doesn't look too helpful either.  However the labour time guide says 0.3hrs to replace, which means they must just pull out, but (disclaimer) I'm not 100% having not tried it myself.

OK, thanks for that Dave (and for being transparent!)

Cheers bud.

Update: the new vents arrived this morning. Driver's side vent was tough to remove, but it's done. Passenger side was relatively easy... the two centre vents just don't want to budge :( It feels like I'm going to tear the whole panel off! On the plus side, it's all symmetrical, and the two outer vents do look much nicer!
